On April 22, FCA International, along with the Construction Industry Procurement Coalition (CIPC), assisted Reps. Scott Peters (D-CA) and Pete Stauber (R-MN) with the launch of a construction procurement caucus for the 117th Congress to advance “sensible reforms” for federal contractors.

Reps. Peters and Stauber founded the Construction Procurement Caucus last year, but April 22 was the formal launch due to pandemic delays. The federal government’s annual spending on procurement has increased steadily in recent years, and it spends “tens of billions of dollars” on construction related procurements, the event moderator said.

The goals of the caucus are to simplify the process for federal construction procurement, foster a competitive market for businesses of all sizes, support better opportunities for businesses in the federal marketplace and advance procurement-related legislation.

FCA will work closely with this group to ensure member contractor interests are considered.
